With legislative approval for right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation, Ring Road’s western end likely could be extended to link with Interstate 65 and U.S. 31W possibly sometime in 2017.
“I never thought about it being that soon,” Elizabethtown Mayor Edna Berger said. “That would be awesome.”
Since last September, Ring Road has been open to the Western Kentucky Parkway. That intersection is only eight-tenths of a mile across fields to Interstate 65.
